Government transparency is a key element to America's Constitutional Republic. Americans generally have a good picture about what their elected officials are up to since they are subject to regular, competitive elections. If they go against the will of the people, the people can throw them out of office.
However, the government bureaucracy has much less oversight and will often act in their own self-interest which can take many forms. For instance, bureaucracies can engage in "empire building" which often results in a bloated workforce, payroll, or both. Naturally, this comes at the expense of the taxpayer.
